The Go-To: Everyday Winter Classics

Simple, no-nonsense, no-brainer. Everyone's got to have something in their back pocket for those days when there's a quick turnaround necessary from the time you wake up to when you need to step (or rush) out the door. For me, that's a combination of a few great basics like a well-fitted button-down and worn-in pair of denim matched with classic items like a waistcoat, tie, and jacket in winter-weight fabrics.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Mix & Match: The Odd Vest

When it comes to suits, you'll never get a bigger bang for your buck than with a three-piece. The simple addition of a waistcoat dramatically increases your styling options. Regular HSS readers already know this and have heard me say it a thousand times. Wearing a three-piece suit cut from the same cloth is simple, but can sometimes be a bit dressy. Change it up with an odd vest.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Mixing Fall Fabrics: Denim, Tweed, and Flannel

Greetings from Albuquerque, everyone. It's hard to believe, but Rob and I have been on the road for an entire month. And today, I'm finally flying home for a brief second before heading to New York to shoot for an upcoming collaboration and then immediately on to Milan for some much needed R&R as well as a few meetings. One of the challenges of traveling so much is making sure we've got content in the can, which means we'll shoot as much as possible before long trips like the one we've been on. Today's look is one that we shot prior to leaving and mixes up a few of my favorite fall fabrics.  VIEW MORE ▶︎

Fall Business Casual: Cardigan as Blazer

If it was practical for me to wear a three-piece suit all the time, I would wear one every damn day. I spend a lot time talking about a three-piece suit's versatility, but let's talk a bit about the whole package. Timeless, classic, confident, masculine. A three-piece suit can look put together and nonchalant at the same time. The problem with wearing one on a daily basis is that, unless you're in a line of work where a three-piece suit is required, it can come off as much too formal for modern life. Dress down a three-piece suit by swapping the jacket for a chunky knit shawl collar cardigan.  VIEW MORE ▶︎
